According to central defender Chris Smalling, they're fired up to take on the Hornets this Sunday.

Man United boss Jose Mourinho rues the offsides goal from Feyenoord and talks about giving games to his fringe players.

As if a second successive defeat for United was not enough, the result was almost compounded by Smalling missing the team flight back to Manchester.

"When we won the Community Shield, and three Premier League matches, I was not saying we are phenomenal and we will beat every opponent", he added.

The Red Devils went down to a late 1-0 defeat to the Dutch side on Thursday, making it back-to-back losses after they were beaten 2-1 by Manchester City last Saturday.

United face Feyenoord before travelling to Watford in the Premier League on Sunday and Northampton next Wednesday in the EFL Cup.

"We don't have time to dwell and we have a few days to recover".

Speaking in an interview with United's website, Mourinho said: "I don't think it will be easy [to bounce back] but the game will be independent". We need to focus on ourselves and how we start (on Sunday). "In the second half they answered my words at half-time, and I'm more disappointed because it's exactly in our best period that we lost the game", he said post-match.

"I think (the confidence) does take a little knock, but I think we can't forget some of the chances we created".

Smalling made his first start of the season in the defeat at De Kuip.

"I think in first half we were not especially bad but we didn't have an ambitious attitude. We need to get off to a quick start and hopefully get an early goal that would settle us".
